80s, Bad, and Cats: h
Halo is at the emergency vet with her 2nd battle with glaucoma. Back in September she had to have her right eye removed and the biopsy revealed it was primary glaucoma meaning it's hereditary & that inevitably we'd be right here dealing with the other eye. 😿 She's going to be sedated and the eye fully examined to determine the best course of action for this eye. From what we can tell (which has progressed so quickly in a matter of days just like last time), the vision is now gone during the day too (it was just a night a couple weeks ago) and she'll likely have to have this eye removed as well. She wasn't in pain until today and last week I proactively made an appt with the eye specialist because I knew we were getting close & needed to create a plan of action for when things got bad (which is when vision is totally lost). The appt was for 4:30 today. We didn't make it because of her waking up panting with pain and no vision at all. We brought her to emergency so she didn't have to suffer all day. This is how fast this awful disease progresses. Unlike people, pets can go from doing ok and managing with pressure drops to ending up at emergency within a weekend! Please read up on glaucoma and become familiar with the signs-symptoms. Many mistake a wet eye for seasonal allergies and it could be glaucoma. Cats can get glaucoma too so this isn't just for dog owners. Better to check and be safe than sorry. So now we wait.... we will update as soon as we know more. XOXO UPDATE: pressures were in the 80's & there is no vision so enucleation (eye removal) will be performed just like 9 months ago. Unfortunately that's just the way glaucoma ends most times. She will be pain free and back home tonight. This ordeal will finally be over and she can start acclimating to getting around without vision. Thank you all for all the love and well wishes! 😘😽
